A Sibley man walked into the Webster Parish Sheriff’s office yesterday and confessed to forced sexual acts with a young girl. The unusual part of this was that no report had been made.
“It was an unusual confession,” criminal investigations supervisor Maj. Steve Cropper said in the release. “In this case we had the confession of a perpetrator, but no victim. So this investigation began differently.”
Phillips turned himself in after his young victim divulged her experiences of abuse to her church youth pastor and mother, the release states.
James Reuben Phillips II was booked on a charge of aggravated rape of a child under 13 years of age. He was transported for booking to Bayou Dorcheat Correctional Center.
